We love a good morning workout sesh — it’s a fab way to start any day and it helps to increase blood circulation (meaning healthy, glowing skin). Yes, please!
But before you go splashing your face with just water after an intense sweat sesh, browse through our list of post-gym beauty essentials. From the right cleanser to chemical-free deodorant wipes, these products will ensure you properly cleanse and feel fresh — and ready to tackle the work day, of course!
111SKIN Lift Off Purifying Cleanser $70
Dr. Yannis Alexandrides, founder of 111SKIN, says that “leaving makeup on for a gym session is a cardinal skin sin” and will result in spots so it’s important to remove makeup with a gentle cleanser. She notes that your pores open right after you work out, therefore a post-workout cleanse is fantastic for your skin.
Little Barn Apothecary Aloe + Rosewater Face Toning Balance Mist $16
After cleansing, make sure to balance your skin with a gentle face spray. We love this facial mist because the rosewater helps to maintain the pH balance and control excess oil. It also helps with collagen production!
AMOREPACIFIC Natural Protector SPF 30 $65
Gina Mari, a top Beverly Hills aesthetician in Beverly Hills, says that applying SPF after gymming is crucial. She especially loves the AMOREPACIFIC SPF product because “it’s non-comedogenic and helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.”
Dior Diorskin Nude BB Cream $45
The last thing you want to do after a workout is apply a thick, heavy foundation formula to your skin. Let it breathe for a hot second! We love this BB cream from Dior, as it smoothes, protects, and corrects, leaving your skin fresh and dewy.
Pacifia Coconut Milk & Kale Extract Underarm Deodorant Wipes $9
These new deodorant wipes are uh-mazing. Not only are they chemical free, but they also smell incredibly refreshing. They’re perfect for when you don’t have time to shower but need to quickly freshen up. The odor neutralizing ingredients offer long-lasting protection with one quick swipe.
Batiste On the Go Size Dry Shampoo in Blush $3.99
No post-workout beauty arsenal would be complete without a handy dry shampoo. Batiste’s mini blush can is perfect for gym goers, as it instantly removes grease, adds volume, and will leave your hair feeling “so fresh and so clean.”
We definitely suggest starting your day on a positive note. This revitalizing spray from Jurlique will uplift your senses and have you feeling alert and awake. Spray on your face, inhale, and be on your merry way. It’s something you’ll want to keep handy 24/7.
